Big Waves Result in Big Fish!
On Sunday, July 6th, the Jim Schlieder party had a rough day of fishing thanks to the 4, 5 and occasional 6 foot waves Lake Ontario was throwing at them. Although the day was sunny and clear, it was cooler and the southwest winds created waves averaging between 4-6 feet which did not let up.
The brave fishermen and women endured the rough seas long enough to take on a decent catch of Lake Trout along with a couple of Whitefish. But in the end, it all seemed to have paid off when Allie landed a trophy Lake Trout tipping the scales at just over 19 pounds! Now that is a lot of Lake Trout!
